Potential? Upside? NHL readiness?
This is a monstrous year for him. The expectation is that he will dominate with top line minutes. The skating/speed is NHL ready. His awareness, hockey sense, creativity, etc. still needs work. He seems like a smart and dedicated kid though, so between the tools he's already developed, and what seems like a solid character, the hope is he rips apart college hockey and competes for a job next year. I'm hopeful he recognized his shortcomings and will focus on improving them, rather than leaning on his physical superiority at that level.
